‘Girls on the Run’ empowers students to live positively
For the past 12 weeks, the Youth and Family Resource Center at Clayton B. Wire Elementary School has been working to prepare nine girls to participate in a 5K run through its “Girls on the Run program.”
The program teaches life skills through interactive lessons and running games. The goal of the program is to build confidence through accomplishment while establishing an appreciation of health and fitness.
During their training, the girls created a cheer to represent who they are:
“We are C.B.
Wire Girls on the Run
We love to have fun and run in the sun
We are plugged into the positive plug
We are smart and super cool because we go to CB Wire School!”
